I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn for 2 weeks for a business trip. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The internet was pleasantly fast. I used the treadmill multiple times and it worked fine. I liked the cold water dispenser in the gym and the towels to wipe my face. I was able... More

We stayed the night here after spending the day at the zoo. The grounds were clean and we didn't feel insecure about leaving our car parked out all night. The room and bathroom were clean. There are plenty of fast food chains and restaurants around the hotel (walking distance). The area is ok, the other people staying at the hotel... More

I was here on business in June 2015. First off, I have always had good service and stayed at nice Holiday Inns, so this is not against the chain. The actual hotel is in bad disrepair. The faucet in the tub kept coming out of the wall everytime I touched it. The rooms and hallways have a bad odor. One... More

Let me put it this way...I was extremely grateful that the last time we stayed there (and trust me, it was definitely the last time) my daughters were fast asleep and weren't able to hear the noises coming from the room beside us. It was almost to the point where I wanted to call the police because I wasn't sure... More

This hotel has a great location for anything you want to do in downtown Cinci. The trolley stop is right nearby and that's only $1 each way. We used it to travel to and from the Bunbury festival each night and a lot of people were using it for Reds games as well. So nice to not worry about parking.... More

I had been to this hotel before and it was a very nice hotel. it is very convenient to restaurants and fast food places. There is public transportation to the Great American Ballpark if you are going to watch a Reds game. However, the beds were really hard and there were not enough pillows for my taste. The Bathroom is... More

We stayed there for two nights for my daughter's wedding. They picked this hotel due to they can offer transportation to venue. This hotel is kind of old. Room is OK. The service at the restaurant is really bad. We asked for drinking water and utensil which took forever. The waitress has no patient either. Do not recommend this place.

This is my second time staying at this property. I like the convenience to the stadiums, area attractions and the freeway. The rates are reasonable as well. However, the beds are so hard. They need new mattresses. The hotel is clean and the rooms are decent. It is in a great location. I would stay here again because of the... More

Dated facility. No in-room anything. Bed & restroom pretty much. This place is close to the $1.00 trolley to and from Cincinnati / Covington areas of iinterest. Besides that, not much. This place will do if you need basic lodging and aren't expecting much more.

A large group of us stayed here for a birthday outing. It is about a 5 min walk to the bars in Covington. My only two issues with our stay were the AC didn't seem to be working well in our room and they charge 9.99 for the breakfast bar in the morning. I don't mind paying for a Hot... More
